Liverpool party venue 24 Kitchen Street is to offer a more sobering clubbing experience to  celebrate the spring equinox next weekend.

On Sunday, March 24, revellers can attend an event that aims to “redefine the clubbing experience”. It will be an alcohol-free night of partying as well as breathwork, meditation, sound therapy and dance.

Called by organisers “a new wave of conscious clubbing” Movers ’n Soul Shakers will offer what they say will be a “credible alternative to traditional drinking-focused nightlife”. It follows a wave of sober raves that have been taking place across Europe.

Renowned DJ Nell Shakespeare, with 15 years’ of experience entertaining in Ibiza, will take attendees on a musical journey to warm up the crowd vocalising some classic tracks.

And another DJ, the legendary Andy Carroll, who has spun the decks at iconic venues including Quadrant Park, Cream and Pikes over 21 summers, will take people on a trip down memory lane.

Andy has also  been a fixture in Ibiza, spinning tunes and setting the stage on fire. Now, as an international DJ, he graces prominent venues such Shoreditch House in Barcelona and other hotspots worldwide.

Beyond the decks, Andy wears the hat of a freelance consultant, bringing his expertise to diverse projects curating panels and adding his touch to celebrations such as Sound City and Glastonbury.

After the dance, sound therapist Geniene Azalea, with a decade of meditation teaching experience, will provide a blissful hypnotic sound bath experience alongside Jake Jervo.

This combination of rhythmic movements and soothing sound aims to unleash all the feel-good hormones, offering a unique and rejuvenating experience.

The event’s purpose is to connect like-minded individuals who seek the joy of dancing without the drawbacks of a hangover

Jake Jervo, a resident drag artist from local LGBTQ Club Night Sonic Yootha, said: “Dance is a form of therapy for me, and I can’t wait to share our music and sound baths and just have a dance with some new souls.”

Venue is the The Green Room, upstairs at 24 Kitchen Street, Liverpool. Contact for more information.
